Album Notes
Singer-songwriter-guitarist Jason Fickel was born in Kansas and raised in western Colorado. Bitten by the blues, he headed south to Mississippi where he learned blues guitar and the blues trade from some masters--bluesmen James "Son" Thomas and Othar Turner. Next Fickel headed north, first to Rhode Island, where he played in coffeehouses and biker bars, and then on to Chicago, where he honed his songwriting craft. Now a resident of Indiana - America's Crossroads - Fickel continues to tour, write, and record original music.

Kerosene Cologne showcases Jason's slide and electric guitar playing, anchored by his acoustic finger-picking and soulful vocals. Soaring background vocals and clever percussion by producer Lauren Robert, horns by Jonathan Elmer, and keyboard contributions by Slats Klug and Dan Lodge-Rigal all magnify and amplify the emotional resonance of Fickel's songs.

clever, innovative, wry & wistful w/great sound production!
From the intriguing paintings on the cover to the clever lyrics, this album works as a whole.

Jason starts out strong with "I want all my money back," a cleverly angry song that most listeners will be able to relate to. "Gamelan Boyfriend" and "Bells of Avignon" are two of my favorites: In both, the narrator requests that his love return, but realizes that this isn’t going to happen. “Gamelan” has bravado and humor as well, which adds to the pathos. And I just love the idea of all those bells ringing in so many places, and what all the bells are saying is, it's over (in "Bells").

What's intriguing to me is that all the songs, as a whole, are filled with bravado & wit, but ultimately are about coming to terms with loss. So how can they be so funny and sad at the same time? -- clever lyrics, excellent sound, very enjoyable listening experience!
